Chef John's Sweet Potato Gnocchi
Tender gnocchi starts with cooking a sweet potato in a microwave or oven until soft, scooping out the flesh, and mixing it together with ricotta, egg, salt, cayenne, and flour. This dough gets portioned into eight 1/2-inch thick ropes that are cut with a bench press into gnocchi-sized bites. While we let our gnocchi dry, a savory bacon-butter sauce is simmered on the stove with rosemary. Our gnocchi get boiled before they’re coated in our sauce, finishing the beautiful dish that can be served up as an appetizer, side, or main! Get the recipe for Chef John's Sweet Potato Gnocchi.
